Chicago Tribune
It's the pre-teen set who will revel in the adolescent angst and anarchic high jinks of Max Keeble.

Miami Herald
Realistic, it's not. But Max Keeble's Big Move, predictable though it may be, makes most of the right moves for the older elementary/younger middle school market.

New York Post
Bland, occasionally funny.

Chicago Sun-Times
It is the kind of movie one enjoys more at 8, or even 12, than at 16 and up.

TV Guide
A shamelessly derivative, if basically likeable, kid's picture.

The real shocker is how many grown men it took to conceive and write this lamebrained tale.

New York Daily News
It's just a setup for another bad sight gag that ends up where the script itself belongs, in the trash.
33
Entertainment Weekly
Garish, squeal-pitched preteen comedy.

Even though children will probably enjoy the film, without any intelligent humor or surprises, Max Keeble's Big Move will definitely disappoint those who were born before 1988.
25
A movie like this depends on clever bits and incidents, but there's little invention here to disguise the film's formulaic nature.

I'd write it all off as something that is, after all, intended for young viewers -- but then I'd be insulting their intelligence as cruelly as the movie does.
